Right now we are working to fund our fall show

These Shining Lives by Melanie Marnich


We need to raise $9000 to bring this powerful story to the stage. It’s a story about four women who share a deep friendship and a righteous cause. A show with heart and humanity, a lot of laughs, and poetic language.

I love a good story. They’ve always been the way I figure out and understand the world and my place in it. Shay’s ability to tell his story on his blog is what first drew me to his work. His stories helped me accept parts of my own story. So when I heard that he wanted to start a theatre company that would focus on telling stories meant to change the world, I knew I had to be a part of that. If I lived close, I’d have been first on his list of volunteers to work backstage, but that’s not a practical option given where I live. Helping fund the first production through Kickstarter was the perfect way to help make sure those stories were told in one of the most powerful mediums of live theatre. Karen Coverett    Victoria, BC


As a social impact leader, I firmly believe that stories, not statistics, move the needle when it comes to the most pressing issues facing society today. Uprising’s mission to create and produce “stories that change the world” taps into that fundamental concept – and takes it one further by using the potent media of theatre to embody it. I am a proud supporter of Uprising’s vision, and am excited to see it become a reality. Adam Rao     Minneapolis, MN
